We recently came across an essay from Herman Miller, titled “Sit. Stand. Move. Repeat.,” discussing the importance of moving throughout the work day. It’s an interesting article that will leave you questioning the amount of time you spend sitting at the office. Herman Miller is not suggesting we abandon our desk chairs and stand all day (this would have its own health risks), they’re simply showing the benefits of a flexible work environment, one that moves with you as you go about your day.
Ten years after creating the award-winning Mirra Chair for Herman Miller, the Berlin-based designers of Studio 7.5 are once again advancing the way we sit. Mirra 2 moves as you do, at one with your body.¹ The chair is leaner and lighter than it’s earlier model, and responds to even the slightest of movements, supporting you wherever you go.²
In addition to advancing the chair’s technology, Studio 7.5 and Herman Miller also worked to reduce the chair’s environmental impact: it’s up to 93% recyclable and made with 46% recycled content.³ Even through all of these changes, Studio 7.5 has stayed true to their original vision – to create a chair that could react to what people do.
This video will introduce you to the chair:
